2016 Martin Luther King, Jr. Weekend

Update 2017 – Click Here


Jan 15, 2016

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., asked us to consider: Life’s most persistent and urgent question is: What are you doing for others?  Each year, Americans across the country answer that question by coming together on the King Holiday to serve their neighbors and communities.

The MLK Day of Service is a part of United We Serve, the President’s national call to service initiative. It calls for Americans from all walks of life to work together to provide solutions to our most pressing national problems.

BE. Orlando 2016 MLK Weekend of Service (#MLKDay)

In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., the nation continues his legacy of service to others.  Each year, BE. participates in service initiatives to celebrate service and diversity.

Throughout the MLK weekend, BE. Orlando volunteers will engage in various service projects, including refurbishing a playground at a domestic violence shelter, feeding families of children receiving treatment for long-term and terminal illnesses, and hosting a Secular Sunday Supper conversation as part of the Sunday Supper America movement. Our Sunday Supper conversation topic is Service and Diversity: Civic engagement of the secular and Humanist community and how service can increase acceptance and inclusion of Secular Americans.

We welcome community members to join us.
